What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are a leading cause of blindness around the world. They most often affect people over 40 and develop gradually. Cataracts may appear in either eye but can occur in both.

People with cataracts experience milky or cloudy buildup on their eye’s lens that obscures their vision. Cataracts can make it harder to drive, read, or recognize faces, and lead to complete blindness when left untreated.
